Plans submitted for Free School specialising in science

How the new school could look

Plans have been put to Norfolk City Council to convert the former fire station in Bethel Street Norwich into the country's first free school specialising in maths and science.

If the plans get the go ahead the Isaac newton Sixth Form will open in September with an initial intake of 220 pupils with a further 200 the following year.

As the building is Grade II listed many of the original features will have to be kept including the iconic wooden doors and the drill tower.

A public consultation will continue until March 1st with a final decision made on May 10th.
